“Artistry in Rhythm”

On 12 March 1973 the Stan Kenton Orchestra gave an afternoon workshop and an evening concert outside of Atlanta, Georgia. The concert was sponsored by the Columbia High School Band Boosters, as a fund raiser.

Sixteen year old composer Terry Vosbein was there. In this excerpt from that concert, Vosbein presents a rare moment of the Kenton Band going "off-book." In addition, he presents some personal insights of his early involvement with the Kenton Clinics.
